Communicating Effectively and Professionally With Clients, Colleagues and Supervisors: March 29th 12-1pm Room 170

Communicating Effectively and Professionally With Clients, Colleagues and Supervisors: March 29th 12-1pm room 170

Learn how to communicate effectively through email and in person during a job search and as a new attorney in the workplace.

Join us as we answer these questions:

Why is “effective communication” important in developing one’s professionalism? In succeeding as an attorney?

What do you believe it takes to be an effective communicator in general?

Do you believe being a good listener is important, and if so, how can you be a good listener?

What should you think about in terms of non-verbal communication?

  • 85% of what we communicate to each other is done non-verbally through our physical movements, mannerisms, and even our silence. Turn this question over to the panel to expound further and give examples from personal experiences. Think of the importance of that initial handshake and eye contact with a new client or business contact? What it says about someone when they keep their office door shut all the time or don’t take a moment to say hello to their legal assistant in the morning? Many examples we can give.

CPD Credit approved.  Lunch will be provided.
